The reason is documented in the Expert's Guide - @Scale with empty
left argument scales to all available width first, a whole page in
your case.

Use, admiteddly unwieldy, double rotation.  Example below split across
multiple lines for clarity:

    -90d @Rotate        # rotate back
    2.5c @Wide @Scale   # scale to constrained width (height of original obj)
    90d @Rotate         # swap horiz/vert
    B                   # object to scale
